Paper Players 243

DSCF9676

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Hope your weekend is moving along in a dandy way!  My sweet friend Sandy has our theme challenge today at the Paper Players, and I just love it!  I had a bunch of ideas for this one!

In the end, I decided to use Lesley’s Fusion challenge as a starting point for my card:

I used both the sketch and the colors for my card, so it is a bit busier than my usual style, but I had fun creating it!  Here we go!

I didn’t use kitchen images for my card, obviously, but I have a lot of vintage-style travel images, so I pulled them all out!  My images are from Traveler, The Open Sea and Postage Due, and the sentiment is from Project Life’s Remember This.  I stamped the images on DSP and did some distressing along the edges.  The map background is some Typeset paper that I brayered with Crushed Curry ink.  I also hand-painted the stripes on my sentiment circle to imitate the striped can in the challenge photo:

I added some ribbon, linen thread, twine and candy dots as well.  On the inside, I combined sentiments Num Num and Adventure Awaits, which has such cool fonts, I just loved how it turned out!  I think this will be great for a masculine birthday or maybe a retirement card!

The design team has come up with some fabulous creations using the Transportation theme, so share yours with us as well at the Paper Players blog!  You can also check them out here:

Speaking of transportation, Cassidy enjoyed her own form of transportation yesterday:

This is fantastic, LeAnne! I love all the colors and textures you used on your card. The brads on the suitcase panel remind me of the vintage studded suitcases. What a fantastic card! Maybe I'll find time (and energy) to play along this week as I'm feeling what must be inklings of creativity. :)

Wow! Love the way you've combined the different images on this card! I have one of those sets that's retiring! Hope to find the time to "get in gear" and play along! :) Hope you're having a great weekend!

What an amazing travel card, LeAnne! You've combined so many interesting elements and they work perfectly together. Your picture of Cassidy reminds me of me when I was little, and going on pony rides Sundays after church!

What a great collage card, LeAnne! You've done such a good job with the inspiration photo and it's amazing how well all these different stamps sets work together. Fabulous job with both challenges!

I love the bright colours and how you incorporated the traveller stamp set into this card. A great idea to brayer the background typeset paper too - I never think to do this! Such a great collage card LeAnne - I wish I could pull off something like this!

Ann Schach said...

What a fabulous mix of colors, patterns and images! Brayering the Typeset paper is so clever! I love all of the details. Cassidy looked like she was having a great time!
